“The Australian economy has just experienced its first recession in nearly three decades and despite interest rates being cut to zero and the Federal government has just announced its largest peacetime deficit in history, the growth outlook remains subdued. The challenge for the economy is that several of the key drivers of that record-long economic expansion boom have now dissipated, including sharp increases in leverage, population growth, and trade with China, which means our lack of major economic reforms since 2004 may now start to weigh on trend growth. Does this mean that Australia will now be stuck in the slow lane of growth, or can more be done to enhance the outlook?
The challenge for investors in Australian assets is not only subdued growth but also rich asset valuations. So, does this mean that Australia’s sharemarket with its high exposure to traditional cyclical sectors is set to underperform its peers, or will our high dividend yield provide a low-risk income source which investors can use for successful wealth creation?
In this presentation, Matt will discuss his views on the Australian economy and asset markets relative to its peers, and how to build a portfolio in today’s challenging investment terrain which can simultaneously solve sequencing and longevity risk. Matt will also discuss the evolution underway in portfolio construction which can help advisers achieve better risk-controlled outcomes for their clients”
